Israel’s role in the invasion and occupation of Cyprus part 1

July 23, 2009
There are some Greeks; particularly Greek Americans, continuously bombarded with Israeli apologetics, who find it difficult to understand why other Greeks are ambivalent about the state of Israel. Certainly, there are some traditional northern European inspired Right-wing Greek anti-Semites but they are few and far between. There are also traditional Left-wing anti-Israeli Greeks, which are larger in number, who automatically sympathise with the just Palestinian cause because of their underdog status. However, a significant number of sensible largely non-aligned Greeks are ambivalent about Israel due to its role before, and during, the invasion and occupation of Cyprus.

Anti-israel, Anti-semitic Climate in Greece As Result of Cyprus War

 
A climate hostile to Israel with clear anti-Semitic overtones has developed in Greece as a result of the Cyprus crisis and the feeling in Athens that U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger’s policies have betrayed Greece. The anti-American resentment through out Greece has a Jewish edge to it and at least one leading Athens dally repeatedly refers to Kissinger as “the German Jew Kissinger.”

Cyprus should not be an Israeli military training ground

June 15th, 2017
AKEL spoke for many people when it expressed its disapproval of the joint military exercise between the National Guard and the Israeli Defence Force on Cyprus Republic territory. Cyprus gained no benefit from the joint exercise and therefore had no reason to stage it. If anything, it could have harmed relations with neighbouring countries without giving the country any strategic, political or economic advantage.

Turkish Invasion Of Cyprus Quotes

“1. Bangladesh…. In 1971 … Kissinger overrode all advice in order to support the Pakistani generals in both their civilian massacre policy in East Bengal and their armed attack on India from West Pakistan…. This led to a moral and political catastrophe the effects of which are still sorely felt. Kissinger’s undisclosed reason for the ‘tilt’ was the supposed but never materialised ‘brokerage’ offered by the dictator Yahya Khan in the course of secret diplomacy between Nixon and China…. Of the new state of Bangladesh, Kissinger remarked coldly that it was ‘a basket case’ before turning his unsolicited expertise elsewhere.
